Let's Peg It!

September 12, 2014
I came across some jumbo pegs at my local Tiger store and knew one could be easily transformed into a unique photo holder.

The pegs were a bargain at £1 each.

I took a peg apart and used each piece as a template on my paper. I cut these out with a craft knife and stuck the paper to the peg pieces using Mod Podge.

Once dry, I brushed on a layer of Mod Podge to form a seal.

Finally I added 3 flower embellishments to the bottom of the peg ... less is more, as they say!

This peg is a great photo holder, but also great for keeping together important bits of paper, including those supermarket coupons!

Over The Moon

August 10, 2014
The Supermoon is the closest full moon of the calendar year, when the moon appears largest in the sky.

Tonight it was visible over the UK and I ventured out into the darkness to get a quick shot.

Considering I couldn't really see what I was doing, I am pretty pleased with the image!

Fjord Eyes Only

July 29, 2014
We've just returned from one of the most beautiful and scenic holidays I have ever had...cruising The Norwegian Fjords.

We sailed on the Queen Victoria, a member of the Cunard family.

Taking a baby on a cruise was a great idea - no chores to do, no washing to do, no meals to prepare, just 7 whole days to enjoy being a family.

Our first port was Bergen and we took a trip on the Fløibanen Funicular to experience the fantastic views (you can see the Queen Victoria bottom right)

We sampled the delights of the Fish Market

Second port was Andalsnes where we got ashore via the ship's tender

One man didn't seem too keen to see us...!

We then went on to Olden and saw it's beauty from an open top bus tour

We stopped mid tour to photograph the glacier down Olden Valley

Stavanger was our final port of call and it was hosting it's Gladmat food festival

It was our first cruise and it's safe to say we definitely now have the bug for it!
